Podcast: The Artist in Society

By making us face our innermost thoughts, beliefs, and fears, artists can be a vehicle for cultural change.

Arlene Goldbard is a writer, social activist and consultant whose focus is the intersection of culture, politics, and spirituality. She is the Chief Policy wonk of the U.S. Department of Arts and Culture and President of the Shalom Center, and is the author of “The Culture of Possibility: Art, Artists, and the Future”.

Arlene joins Peter Goldsmith and Bill Wood to discuss the ways in which artists, and art in all its forms, impact on a society’s culture. In an age when art is devalued in our educational system in exchange for an almost exclusive focus on more practical forms of learning, it’s important to keep in mind that artists are an important conduit for putting forward the issues that absorb us, some of which might lie beneath our consciousness. In essence, they force us to confront our demons.

“The Culture of Possibility: Art, Artists, and the Future” and other works by Arlene can be found on amazon.com
